If you’re into the “pow,” you’d best check these Apex HD goggles. You’ll be able to capture everything in your way thanks to a full HD video camera (12 megapixel still camera) with 30-degree rotation, 135 degree wide-angle view, and 8-gigabyte MicroSD memory card.
That’s not all: You’ll be able to see your POV in real time via a downloadable app.
Competition for GzoPro: Sony’s developing a new type of hi-def wearable video camera for POV and action sports filming, and we’re giving you – our stellar fans – the first look at the device!
The video camera is tiny and lightweight, but it houses Sony’s hallmark SteadyShot® image stabilization technology, Exmor® R CMOS image sensor, and an ultra-wide angle Carl Zeiss® Tessar® lens.
That means, whether you’re roosting on your dirtbike, shredding major powder, jumping out of a plane, or kayaking through an epic waterfall, you’re capturing super high-quality video of it to show off to your family and friends. And there’ll be ruggedized and waterproof housings available so the camera can do its job in even the most extreme environments.
Hard drive-manufacturer Seagate today unveils a first–a wireless hard drive with a built-in personal Wifi network for iOS devices–Apple’s iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The idea is that since the Apple devices don’t have expandable memory or slots to allow in external hard drives, heres a way to greatly extend their use. The Seagate GoFlex Satellite drive is 500 Gigabytes and sells for $199.99, at the Seagate, Amazon and Best Buy websites. It will extend to Best Buy’s retail stores in July, and be available for Android phones in the summer.
has always been a huge issue. Helmets and riding suits help somewhat, but they can only do so much. Dainese hope to remedy the problem with their D-Air Suit.
Similar methods have been developed in the past, but Dainese claims their system is better and will provide more promising results. The unit is mounted around the neck and upper back of the rider and can deploy in less than 40 milliseconds.
Instead of being attached to the bike itself, this design uses accelerometers and gyroscopes to detect sudden changes in velocity and orientation to the ground. When enough of a change is reached, the airbag will deploy and hopefully save the riders life.
The system proved itself on more than one occasion during a Grand Prix race on the Valencia Circuit. Three different riders from 2 different divisions got an up-close and personal test run on the new sfaety feature and it’s safe to say they were more than pleased. The slowest of the accidents occurred at 111km/h (70mph) and the fastest at 123km/h (77mph). I would call it an overall success.
